Cold symptoms

I have had cold symptoms for weeks. I finally broke down and went to med express where they pretty much treated me like a criminal for wanting to feel better. I has tried all the home  remedies but nothing worked. They ended up giving me an antibiotic at med express. I felt better for  a few days  but now I feel  worse then I did before. I feel like someone is scrapping my throat with a knife everytime I cough which is like every five minutes. One of my coworkers said I should get used to it because I will feel this way the rest of my pregnancy. Any help? Will I really feel like this my whole pregnancy?

You could have a sore throat from drainage. If your not feeling better when you finish your antibiotics then go see your Dr.

I finished the antibiotic but I still feel awful. When I went they basically were pretty nasty and said there wasn't much they could do. I realize we can't take much but surely feeling this awful isn't healthy for the baby either. I don't even want to hardly eat I feel so bad. I eat because I know it's what's best for my little one
